Humbling Thought

I'm not sure anymore what brought this thought to mind, but I did write it down in my journal....

Most of what we do isn't done "for the ages" or to be remembered forever by future generations. It's done simply for the fact that it needs to be done for those around us today. That becomes much clearer as one gets older. Someone makes a comment about how something you did 20 years earlier touched them and you are suddenly transported back to moments to ministry long forgotten. But not forgotten by someone. Whether they pass that on to someone else is irrelevant. All that matters is that it was done in the first place.

That makes each day and its possible events that much more important and valuable.
